Cam Newton has come in for plenty of criticism for his behaviour following defeat in Super Bowl 50, but Alex Ferguson says hes not the first. Randy Moss Vikings Jersey . Newton: I am a sore loser Cam Newton makes no apologies for behaviour I remember being at Super XLII when David Tyree caught the Helmet Catch that kept the New York Giants in the game against the New York Patriots and led to Plaxico Burress game-leading touchdown. No cheering in the press box? It wasnt cheering so much as a cry of shock to heaven and earth. I still cant believe it.I also remember Tom Brady getting sacked at the end by Jay Alford and a dismal Hail Mary attempt which ended the Pats Super Bowl chances and dream of completing an unbeaten season. After the game I went down to the madness known as the post-match press conferences, and Brady was standing there. Defensive tackle Jay Alford of the New York Giants sacks quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots in 2008 He was asked what throws hed like to have back after a 299-yard, one touchdown performance - where he was sacked five times too, and he said: Pretty much all of em. He added: Were usually on the better side of those three-point wins, referring to the 17-14 score.Those comments could also be described as sour grapes. After all, Cam Newtons grumpiness at his postgame press conference led to him being called a cry baby over a lack of joy for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos following Sundays match. Newton walked out of his Super Bowl 50 press conference following boastful comments from the Denver Broncos Chris Harris Brady wasnt exactly effervescent when he was fielding a barrage of questions on the podium, either.Could it be that its probably difficult to be pleased for your opposition when the opportunity of a lifetime (in both quarterbacks case) has been plucked away…..and you havent had a particularly good game?The media - both social and journalists themselves - have made too much of it. There are some people who have said that the reason why the media have been critical of Newtons postgame walk-off is that its the kryptonite the sharks have been looking for. They dont like Superman doing his thing - by which we mean be a decent person, look like hes actually enjoying playing in the NFL, and giving footballs to kids, all while leading the Carolina Panthers to a 17-1 record (going into Super Bowl 50).And Newton - like Brady (although he never said it at the time) - didnt apologise for being a bit grumpy after the loss. Super Bowl talking points We look back at Super Bowl 50 Show me a good loser and Ill show you a loser, he said, adding: I dont have to conform to what everybody wants. I am my own person.But there may be something more sinister going on than people just annoyed about a postgame press conference.Shaun King of the New York Daily News noted Mannings Super Bowl XLIV loss to the Saints in 2010: With time still remaining on the clock, Peyton did something that Cam Newton would have been absolutely skewered for - he left the field. He didnt congratulate the opposing quarterback Drew Brees, as is customary. He didnt shake any hands. He didnt try to smile. He just bailed. Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison of the Indianapolis Colts talk on the bench after a touchdown against the St. Louis In 2010 there was controversy after Manning walked away. A US sports reporter said: Walking off the field without congratulating Drew Brees may go against our misguided notion of what sportsmanship should be, but it wasnt at all disrespectful or bitter. It shows how much Peyton Manning wanted to win the game. And who can argue about that?I cant argue with it. After all, what did we expect? Cam Newton to join Manning in the postgame press conference and offer to drink Budweisers with him and lead the party all the way to Disneyland?The press needs to chill out about this Cam Newton business. After all, hes got no more tears to shed.

He showed his competitiveness and the variety of his menu. He was going into the post, he was playing pick-and-roll basketball -- he puts a tremendous amount of pressure on your team defense. Hes got all the talent in the world, but what really makes Dwyane is his intellect for the game. He knows where the defense is going to be, and he knows the moves before you even make them.Goran Dragic led Miami with 21 points and 11 assists, and an energetic Hassan Whiteside added 20 points after being benched for part of Fridays blowout loss in Cleveland. Tyler Johnson scored 15, but the Heat dropped their fifth straight.Johnson cut it to 97-96 when he nailed a 3-pointer with 4:20 left.

Butler then hit two free throws to boost Chicagos lead back up to three.With a chance to tie, Dragic and Josh Richardson botched a handoff near the top of the key.
